Le Bignele Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2014

Le Bignele, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2014

RRP N/A in UK

The challenging 2014 is generally dismissed as a poor (one star) vintage, but this shows there are some lovely examples. It’s cool and ever so fresh, reflecting the season. Springs onto a light bodied and lean palate, which has basil and lime and crunchy tannins on ripe cassis fruit. Vibrant and bright with a peppery tarragon bitterness to finish – what a delight. And no hurry here; it will hang on very nicely.
